    hello guys i have an old mobile phone which is not functioning properly but the LCD works fine now how can i remove it from the phones circuit.

    Its a black and white LCD module and i have little knowledge on LCD's and i would like to also know whether if i has a controller i can see a loose LCD module(i.e with any controller)

    but i can't find any chip in the module except a resistor and cap (SMT's)
    and i can't even find the model number or any company info of the LCD module

    please have a look at the pics
    Code ( (Unknown Language)):

    Hit or miss really. If your good with a soldering iron you might be able to undo it that way. Otherwise you might have to cut the ribbon cable and tap off of it, but without knowing what each line is for you will still be somewhat lost.

    You should use a hot air rework station. That allows more than one connection to be removed at a time.

    If the OP does not have one, it would be far too expensive of an option, but I like your suggestion, it's the most effective method.

    ok i think i can isolate board and the module but what about model no. Of the module do you think its hopeless.there is a model no. At the back of the module but when i search it in the net it did not give any info.since it is local brand i cant find any info of the mobile in the net.

    Unless its one of the more common Nokia phones, you're pretty much out of luck finding information about it.
